From the Publisher
Annotation Tense family relationships, painful peer groups, and the agony of being a teenager are all addressed in Sara Zarr's realistic young adult novel. One moment transformed 16-year-old Deanna Lambert's life completely: Deanna's father discovering her having sex with an older boy when she was 13. Treated like an untouchable by almost everyone, most acutely by her father, Deanna attempts to hold her life together by keeping a journal and dreaming of leaving her broken home. Filled with hope, personal miscalculations, and a particularly challenging coming-of-age experience, STORY OF A GIRL is a 2007 National Book Award finalist in the Young People's Literature category.
Editors Note When she is caught in the backseat of a car with her older brother's best friend - Deanna Lambert's teenage life is changed forever. Struggling to overcome the lasting repercussions and the stifling role of "school slut," she longs to escape a life defined by her past. With subtle grace, complicated wisdom and striking emotion, The Story of a Girl reminds us of our human capacity for resilience, epiphany and redemption.
Editors Note 2 After being caught in a compromising situation with her brother's best friend in the back of a car, Deanna's life is forever changed as vicious rumors begin to spread all over town and ruin her reputation. Reprint.
